My wife and I visited this restaurant when we were doing our tour of New Mexico in September 2013. We set up reservations, and arrived on time. The restaurant was small and romantic, just what we wanted for that evening. :) We both got the wine flights, which paired well with our food. My wife had the pasta without the... More

This restaurant is pricey and the portions tend to be small. It is rather small but does have amply seating outside when weather permits. Had gelado once and it was not what I expected, more like ice cream. Also ordered a German chocolate cake once and it was still frozen. Ordered a bowl of soup and what I received was... More

We noted that you last visited our restaurant in May of 2014, almost one year ago. On the day that you wrote the review for YellowBrix, you wrote 3 reviews for 3 other Carlsbad restaurants describing visits that were quite recent (days or weeks ago). The date of your visit clarified some things for us. At first we had wondered... More

We stopped here while in town to see the Caverns. We didn't have reservations, but had no trouble getting a table. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. I had a Philly Cheese-steak--which was good, but being from PA, it wasn't quite a traditional cheese steak. More like jerky and cheese slices laid on top instead of mixed-in, so it... More

Thank you so much for your nice comments! I am happy that you had a good experience, for the most part, since the day of your visit was a very challenging day for us, (the day after Valentine's day), which I explained in a previous response was not our finest day. We were understaffed, partly due to management thinking it... More

We ate here the day after Valentines Day and they probably should have just closed since they were out of so many things. No children's menus, no local IPAs, no prime rib at 5:00 (even though the menu said they didn't start serving it until 5, so clearly they had no plans to offer it on this Sunday), no NY... More

Dear "Must have...", I would like to personally apologize for your experience, last Sunday, the day after Valentine's Day. The entire Valentine's weekend brought an unexpectedly high volume of business, and though we were expecting a record breaking Saturday, we did not anticipate Friday and Sunday to be record-breaking days as well. Business around Valentine's Day is usually lighter, at... More

Have been here several times and everything's always been great. Carlsbad is lucky to have this place. The food and atmosphere is eclectic with their own take on things such as a Cuban sandwich, that is indeed excellent. This being one of only a few fine dining establishments, I always judge a fine restaurant by their ability to do a... More

A salad runs about $12. If shrimp is added, beware! They charge abt $7 extra. As a single person on a budget, my lunch was $28, including a tip for the poached pear salad, diet coke, and gelato. Nothing extra, no refill, no complimentary homemade breads. I waited to be seated for 10 minutes, waited on my bill for 20.... More
